I tried just that and it's nowhere near as toned looking as I had hoped. Also, I couldn't seem to get a true black either. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but it was fresh paper and fresh chemistry.

The brown toner felt a lot more controllable and I was able to get the midtones/highlights just ride and retained true black through and through.
